Best Suppressor for the AR-15? [.223 versus .308 Cans]

In this episode of TFBTV filmed at SilencerCo in Salt Lake City, James Reeves and Austin R. from The Firearm Blog go to SilencerCo’s lab to answer the question: “Which silencer do I get for my AR-15?

On the other hand, .223 cans are lighter, smaller, and usually less expensive. In this video, we have a blind panel compare the sound from each without knowing which is which, and asking what they think about .223 versus .308 cans.
